Indeed a good show - Money for Gasoline certainly has had potential to be a mainstay in whatever future the Dead boys have playing music. The big back half of the first set rather coasts along on that mellow vibe - Lost Sailor is nice to hear.

Second set they really bring out everything - a look at the setlist will get you salivating, and it's as every bit as good as it appears to be (although the Dew, for my taste, is this show's "John K. does Jerry too closely" number). Unbroken Chain in particular is amazing.

This entire show is something around 200 minutes - Furthur really did hit a lot of high marks through this year.

Subject: awesome show man
this show was absolutely wild. being a young dead head i cant really compare it to the grateful dead because i was only 6 when jerry passed (r.i.p jerry), but it was more than i could ever hope for. the lost sailor> Saint of circumstance put shivers down my spine man, absolutely amazing. all in all i think the second set itself was more than a match for the entire show on saturday. both shows blew my mond, but the second set just had me moving and dancing the entire time! absolutely great show, see you guys at the soverign center in reading, my home town. stay grateful everyone for what we've been given,Fruthur, peace!

No Dark Star, but a star-studded 2nd set no less. My jaw hit the floor several times as they rolled out one great tune after another. After a first set that started out great (Shakedown!!) but fizzled late (as in a slow Sailor>Saint, not among my favorites), I figured maybe they were tired at the end of a long tour. Or maybe I was tired. Mts. eased them and me into the 2nd set at a mellow pace, punctuated by some more intense jamming between the last couple verses. St. Stephen brought the energy up, and, although the jam took a while to get going, featured some intense playing before they transitioned back into the song.

At that point, they started into the esoteric part of the show. I like the way they've energized Blues for Allah into a tune that moves. The original was good for spacing out to, but this arrangement, with Russo's relentless drumming driving the band, brought the energy. The drumming was even more intense on Terrapin Flyer, where a few sparse instrumental sections gave Russo his moment to shine. John and Jeff handled the composed part with alacrity.

The First Tube tease in Let It Grow was about the only weak moment in the set. John was unable to complete the theme accurately any one time, probably because it just didn't work in that context. It was kinda cool for him to try, though. The song itself ripped, with tremendous play by John and Jeff on their solos, and a dramatic ending that could only be followed by the Dew. This was a magnificent Dew of 1974 proportions. Anyone who thinks John is just doing Jerry's licks without any heart or passion (I'm referencing a review of Stroudsburg) needs to hear this. John milks his voice and guitar for every ounce of emotion, building up the final section with exquisite precision, very much like the fat man used to do, aided by a generous helping of Phil bombs.

Unbroken Chain and the Wheel were almost gratuitous by this point, but were played to near perfection. Finally, they had mercy on us, ending the set with Not Fade Away.

The recording is an excellent Aud that puts you right in the venue without overwhelming the music with crowd noise.

Subject: Thanks, sounds great, this band really does have it
I have been to shows since '80 (not that long, but long enough to have seen the Grateful Dead on some very tight shows). I agree with the general consensus that this band really has the same feel. The music has that some wonderful quality that used to be typical at dead shows. Jerry used to talk about the audience being the "x" factor, but I have to say that the band also has to bring an element of the "x" factor to the show. This band brings it.

Some of the other lineups have have been fun and have had moments of "that feeling," but this lineup maintains the feeling throughout. Every song may not be perfect, but every song never was.

Earlier comments: Thanks Frank, for taping. I put this onto three discs, with disc three being dew through brokedown palace. This is what I've listened to so far. Excellent sound, and really nice versions. I was there Saturday, so it's nice to hear Sunday.

Reviewer: Mindbender - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 25, 2010
Subject: John K steps up
At times it's seemed that John K has been holding back a bit, leaving the most energetic playing for Jeff on keys. This show does not fit that mold. This tape captures John on a night where he drives the music, during Set 2 in particular. The show reaches perhaps the highest peak of the tour during Let It Grow and Morning Dew. The jamming towards the end of Let It Grow throws sparks around the venue and shows John to be using his obvious talent to develop his own voice within this band. His playing is revelatory, reminiscent of the genius-level insight Jerry brought to the songs, while not sounding quite like anything Jerry would've played. LIG is immediately followed by an astounding Morning Dew that leaves it all on the table. The rest of the show is very good too, but these two songs show what this lineup can achieve when John brings the energy and lets his talent shine.

Subject: What a tour should be
thanks for the show. I have been waiting for this one especially. This was my 4th show on this tour. This one tops even asbury park. After this show we decided to fly out to Red Rocks. Going to be just too cool to miss! This band really has gotten great together. By far the best show around. Thanks again.

Subject: Favorite show so far...
I saw both Philly shows and loved them both, although the sound was muddy the first night. I had seats for the first night and sat up top on the lawn the second. Much improved sound quality night # 2.
I sat behind the tapers in the cool grass and just fell into the music. John K delivered an incredible Morning Dew, so very soulful. Not Fade Away gave me chills, and Brokedown was the perfect punctuation mark to a fantastic weekend!
This band at this moment is so tight, so incredible. they improve with every stop along the journey!

Subject: Great weekend of hippie FUN!!!!
I was inside for Saturday and would love to see that show up here soon if anyone has it and was sitting right outside puffin some killer with strangers that are now my friends on Sunday. Two great nights of great unes. Missed Jerry BAD! Also,I must agree, the balloons were absolutely disgusting!!!!!!! Hippie crack is fun but throw out your trash!!!! Isnt that what we are supposed to do to say we're at least SEMI eco friendly. It was appauling to see so many! Great weekend otherwise! I watched the law shut down Shakedown St. and as soon as I walked away, I heard the band start playing Shakedown St.,lol word traveled FAST!!!!!!! Peace!
Reviewer: landon - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 23, 2010
Subject: Very Nice Show!
This was just a wonderful way to end a tour. The playing was nice and tight and the setlist was killer. I hope this group stays together for another few tours. I have yet to get my fill.

No Stellablu122 stated that the Shakedown from this night may be the best that this band has played. I would ask everyone to take a listen to the Shakedown from Columbus, OH on 7.2.10. The Shakedown in Columbus had more fire and I think the difference is Russo's drumming. In Columbus Russo laid it down and the whole song had more energy. Take a listen for yourself.

Thanks for this very nice recording and I hope to see everyone out there in Fall (fingers crossed).

I was in the taper section chillin' & spied these up front & wondered what the setup was....

These two Philly shows rocked! Had the locals wondering WTF this Furthur Freak Show was all about. Nice clean Recording. Great Setlist.
Great way to end the Tour.

One thing I felt was a downer was all the spent Balloons outside everywhere by the 10k's.
People need to be responsible for their actions & clean up after themselves.

Subject: Listening for the secret...
searching for the sound.
The city of brotherly, and sisterly, love has always been hallow ground for the GD and the recent incarnations of the Dead and now Furthur. This night was the end of heavily traveled compacted tour, jammed into less than three weeks.For the faithful this show added yet another historic chapter to this legacy,especially the second set.
Of the four shows I saw on this tour, this night right from the start was amazing. A excellent Stranger has the band clearly in command with Phil playing very loud and clear.
This unexpectingly drops into a killer Shakedown. The band is on fire by this point and honestly this may be the best one this band has played so far, it is that good. Powering solos from John, great vocals and harmonies and a jammed out ending set the bar and foreshadow an evening of greatness to come.

They go old school with a rousing version of Alligator that has the band rollicking along, the ending features a full on Mind Left Body Tease at the end that gently fades to end the song.
Money for Gasoline was well received by the place and they rocked it out nicely. John delivers another sweet rendition of Magnolia Mountain and then we get a epic Lost Sailor, that is really the better of the two,> Saint of Circumstance which is excellent. Bobby tacks on a high spirited Midnight Hour which ends the set nicely.

Set two begins with a interesting melodic jam that blossoms into a excellent version of Mountains of the Moon. The entire band is right on and Phil's vocals are sweet. The end jam is quite good and this flows into a rousing version of St. Stephen, it gets loose ate a couple points, Phil actually laughs singing his last version before the final chorus, but over all it is highly enjoyable and once again teh jam out of it is really note worthy.

To drop into Blues for Allah was a perfect choice for this set. This version easily surpasses the one played in both Coney Island and Furthurfest. All the elements of the song come together perfectly, the haunting lyrics, the jazzy instrumental sequences with Joe really owning this big time and the uplifting bluesy ending; yes there is still hope for that region folks.

Then we get a wild surprise they stop and suddenly begin the ending of Terrapin station, no vocals and the band soars off into the entire Terrapin Station Suite. They masterfully explode into At a Siding, with Jeff and John trading off those famous runs. Joe Russo is amazing on this part as well. They end it with a an amazing Terrapin Reprise that I felt for sure was going to drop into Morning Dew, Phil was right there and drops a massive bomb, but not yet.

Bobby starts those familiar chords of Let it Grow and the band is off once again.This version is outstanding and Phil, who this entire set, is on fire. He practically plays lead bass with Jeff at one point. John plays some killer runs at the end and then we get the killer Morning Dew.

This one will have you screaming from the mountain top. It is simply a work of art and the entire band is relentless on it. Phil drops at least four bombs and John delivers the goods both vocally and on his guitar. He really opens up and the results are spellbinding.The ending is will bring you to tears.
Then another pause, I knew what was coming, and then a majestic fully played out Unbroken Chain, this just takes the set to the next level, and coming after Morning Dew? Wow!
It is a incredible version and the band fully wields their powers and the results are perfection.

Then to follow this with another wonderful surprise of The Wheel was simply ecstasy. The entire place erupted in joyous rapture and the band, from what I heard, was quite taken back by this at the time. It was just another one of those you had to be there moments, the right song at the right time.
Actually that can be said about this entire set.

"The wheel is turning and you can't slow down
You can't let go and you can't hold on"
Wow, the band just took this one to the moon and back and the crowd was just so into it singing along the entire song.
NFA can always be that perfect affirmation and tonight it was once again.
Yes our love will not fade away.

Brokedown was the perfect sending off of this wondrous night of music with flowing harmonies and that precious melody Jerry wrote 40 years ago that alway takes us home.

Very nice recording (captures Furthur's balance, and finese this night) of a wonderful strong performance. Yeah, especially the second set. So much integrity here, serving great songs. Fun party this night too!
Reviewer: gratefuljess - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 21, 2010
Subject: Fun time at the Mann!
Great show I'd say! Especially the 2nd set! Blue for Allah, Terrapin Suite, and the Dew were the highlights for me.

Anyone who doubted John's ability before the killer Dew, sure doesn't doubt anymore! I can't imagine a better replacement for Jerry's spot.
